Abilities



Relentless assault



Leap strike



empower



Counter strike



Grandmaster'S Might


Your basic combo will probably go something like this:
-->-->

We hit Counter Strike to ready our stun. This way, if we Leap Strike to our opponent, and we get CCed so we can't cast spells, our stun will still activate. Right after the Leap Strike comes Empower, so our first basic attack is a mortal blow to the face. Continue to chase the champion until he/she dies.

Jax reaches his peak around Level 6, when he gets this ability. Around this time is when you want to get back your mana pool, have at least a Bilgewater Cutlass, and then the fun begins. Since the passive on Jax's ult deals magic damage, it is around this time that your opponent won't be able to have damage, armor and magic resistance items, allowing them to trade off with you. If they do start engaging on you, hit your ult. Many times has this helped me in Top Lane.

Not much to put here, but you mainly want to go for AD and attack speed, as those are the main sources of Jax's burst damage. Do put some points into magic penetration, as his Empower and ultimate Grandmaster's Might gives you a crazy amount of extra damage to dish out in magic.

Just put a few points into defense for survivability, and you'll be good for soloing top.
